Brazil’s Dance with the Devil: The World Cup, the Olympics and the Fight for Democracy with Dave Zirin

July 1, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Dear reader, no longer will you spend happy, unreflective, de-politicized hours watching the drama unfold at the football World Cup. Dave Zirin, sports editor for The Nation and author of Brazil’s Dance with the Devil: The World Cup, the Olympics and the Fight for Democracy, is here to spoil the fun. Zirin has been spending time in favelas and soccer stadiums in the build-up to the sporting spectacle, observing the growing unrest across the stratified country. Join him at Bluestockings to hear him unravel the mystery of how “athletic mega-events turn into neoliberal Trojan horses.”
